October 23 – Day 297

National Boston Cream Day


Boston Cream was my favourite donut at Tim Hortons growing up. What rural Newfoundland kid didn’t die and go to heaven when they got to ‘the big city’ and got to lace into so cheaply made mass produced baked goods from a mega chain???!!

My sisters and I used to lick the icing on the top to make it shinier and to deter the others from eating it.

I went to a locally owned and operated donutier in my neighbourhood- Lucky’s Donuts. They have an amazing deal – coffee and a donut for $5. Can’t be beat.

I had a “long John”. It looked like a long Boston cream to me.


Tasted better than Tim’s, that’s for damn sure.
